Well I have to say it has been exactly one week that I have resided in Vermont. So far I really like it. The campus I live and work on is by far one of the most gorgeous I have ever seen. Waking up in the morning and having these views are insane. The job seems wonderful. I think as I start to settle in more I will find lots of challenges but lots of rewards and great things as well. I think as far as a first job goes I could not ask for something that is more suited for me. It is allowing me to do things I am interested in and push me into new ways of thinking. It is also breaking me out of my mold. I will be able to experience new opportunities that I think will allow for me to grow and also figure out where I would like my future in this field to head. The people here have been great too. I have been included and things are not nearly as lonely as I thought they may be. I still enjoy the moments I get to myself but it is nice to have people that work to include you especially when you do not know an area at all.
With all of that said I still miss home. Transition is hard and it makes me tired. It is hard to step into something so new and I yearn for the comfort that I had in my past location and position. I know I needed pushed but I miss people and my old apartment. Things are great but it doesn’t mean they are easy. Then again nothing good in life is usually easy. I am sure I will continue to reflect throughout the year but it is good to put some words out there as to where I am right now.
